Early builds[edit]

E3 2019[edit]

Animal Crossing: New Horizons was formally revealed in E3 2019, although many elements of the game had changed from its reveal on June 11, 2019 to its release on March 20, 2020.

Notably, grass patterns are confined to a small circle and spread around the island, unlike the final game featuring a more uniform grass pattern scattered across the island. The snow also lacked a grass pattern in the reveal, with the final game featuring a circle pattern.

Fuchsia's house is different in this build of the game than the final version. While her wallpaper and flooring remained the same, Fuchsia originally featured a Wooden Simple Bed instead of the Loft Bed with Desk in the final game. Her house layout also changed, with the Cute DIY Table, Ironwood Cart, Double Sofa, Cute Wardrobe, Monstera, Wall-Mounted TV (50 in.), Cute Floor Lamp, and Cute Music Player in a different placement in the initial build. Fuchsia's Rock Guitar was also in the Coral Pink variant than the Fire Red variant. Additionally, the Red Cute Floor Lamp's shade was colored white in this build instead of red in the final build.
